Preparing Underground Drainage in time for Summer

Throughout the winter, your pipes and drains can experience some of the most adverse weather conditions. Total Pipeline Systems supply a complete range of underground drainage products, allowing you to deal with whatever the winter throws at you!

As a simple rule of thumb, water expands when it freezes, therefore, you need to make sure that your drains are protected.

There are several ways in which you can prepare your underground drainage system, including the following:

Insulate pipes.

Make sure that your underground drainage is protected from frost. If your pipes are frozen, you’ll find that your drains won’t be able to function as efficiently. By insulating your drains, you can instantly eliminate any severe damage; preventing any leaks and making sure that liquids flow easily.

Drain pipes.

If you plan to have your underground drainage serviced and maintained regularly, you’ll need to drain your pipes! Try to drain any excess water from your drainage pipes before the summer months. Draining them will make it easier for you to visualise how well your system is performing and to identify which products need replacing or repairing.
